I am finally getting around to introducing my latest sock design here on the blog! These are knit top down and feature a main lace panel, traveling slipped stitches, and eyelet columns. The traveling stitches start in the cuff and continue through the heel flap. While a patterned heel flap can be a bit tricky, this one is pretty mild. The stitches travel on the right side, so you only have to slip them on the wrong side. Easy! I knit the socks using Ella Rae Lace Merino (a fingering weight yarn, despite the name) but I think the pattern shows up nice in a solid, as one of my testers used.
Here’s a close up of the lace panel:

Tiger looks deep in thought, doesn’t he? Maybe he wants you to buy the pattern and is trying to send you mental messages.
